Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants placed Casillas (neck) on injured reserve Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Casillas' neck stinger worsened during the Giants' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Redskins, then sidelined him for the Week 13 loss to the Raiders. With Casillas evidently not making much notable progress in recent days, the Giants decided to shut the linebacker down for the season. He'll finish the 2017 campaign with 35 tackles (25 solo) and one pass breakup across eight contests. Casillas will become a free agent this offseason and may have played his last game with the Giants.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Out for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (neck/wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Casillas was able to play through a neck stinger over the past three games, but he may have suffered a setback in the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Redskins, as he was unable to practice in any capacity this week. The veteran linebacker has 35 tackles (25 solo) through eight games.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Suiting up on Thanksgiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (neck) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Redskins.

Casillas was a late addition to the injury report Wednesday, but he was still able to practice fully. Thus, it is not surprising that he will be active for Thursday's game. With the Giants dealing with several injuries at linebacker, the veteran could be in line for a heavy workload.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Questionable for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (neck) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Redskins.

Casillas didn't crop up on the injury report until Wednesday and was listed as a full participant in the Giants' estimate of what his level of involvement would have been had the team held practice, so it seems likely he'll suit up Thursday. He should be in store for a near-every down role in the Week 12 matchup, but with no more than six tackles in any game this season, Casillas doesn't carry much IDP appeal.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (neck) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

The Giants had already ruled out three linebackers (Keenan Robinson, B.J. Goodson and Devon Kennard) due to injury earlier this week, so Casillas' return from a three-game absence comes at a fortunate time. Despite seeing hefty snap counts in his first five appearances of the season, Casillas only managed 19 tackles and no turnovers, limiting his IDP utility as a result.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

A Casillas return this week would be quite timely, since five of the Giants' top six linebackers are dealing with injuries. The 30-year-old linebacker didn't produce particularly impressive numbers even at full health, posting no more than five tackles in any contest.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (neck) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

Casillas wasn't able to participate in practice at full speed this week, so this doesn't come as a complete surprise. Since neck injuries have tricky recovery periods, the veteran linebacker will likely need a full practice before he's truly ready to get back on the field. Keenan Robinson will continue seeing a hefty workload in Casillas' absence.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Set to sit out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (neck) won't suit up for Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Casillas will miss his second straight week with the injury after he left early in Week 5 against the Chargers. The Giants will head into a bye after Sunday's contest, so there's a decent chance Casillas will be ready to go ahead of the team's subsequent matchup Nov. 5 against the Rams.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Skips practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (neck) was held out of Thursday's practice.

Casillas is still recovering from a nerve issue in his neck and could be in line to miss a second straight game, given that he has yet to put in a full practice since suffering the injury in the Giants' Week 5 loss to the Chargers. Keenan Robinson would likely start at weak-side linebacker if Casillas is unable to play Sunday against the Seahawks.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (neck) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

This will be the first game this season that Casillas misses, and his next opportunity to suit up will be Week 7 against the Seahawks. He has recorded 19 tackles (16 solo) over the first five games, and a quick return would help the Giants make up for an injury-riddled offensive unit. Keenan Robinson will continue to fill in during Casillas' absence.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Day-to-day with burner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas is considered day-to-day with a nerve injury, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

The injury is described as a burner, which is a common nerve injury, so it doesn't like there is much concern surrounding Casillas. However, the Giants will likely exercise caution with something that could potentially turn serious. Expect another update on the linebacker when the team releases an official injury report later this week.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (ankle/wrist) is listed as active Sunday in Tampa Bay.

Held out of practice all week, Casillas' experience in the system was likely enough to warrant Week 4 availability. On the season, the weakside linebacker has notched 13 tackles (10 solo) in three games.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Questionable to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (ankle/wrist) is questionable to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Casillas' chances of playing don't look good after he missed an entire week of practice with a combination of ankle and wrist injuries. Keenan Robinson would likely get the start at OLB if he's ultimately ruled out.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Has 11 total tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas had seven solo tackles and four assists Sunday against the Packers.

Casillas had a solid season as the team's starting weak side linebacker with 96 total tackles (62 solo, 34 assists), 1.5 sacks and eight passes defensed.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Casillas looked to have sustained some sort of knee injury last Sunday against the Lions. Thankfully, it wasn't serious.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Limited on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (knee) was limited in Tuesday's practice session, SportsNet New York reports.

Casillas appears to have tweaked his knee in Sunday's win over Detroit, but the injury isn't thought to be very serious. His limited participation puts him on pace to play in Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Absent from Tuesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas was absent from Tuesday's practice due to a knee injury, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Casillas showed up on the injury report for the first time Monday, giving the indication that he was injured in Sunday's game against the Lions. If he is unable to suit up against the Eagles on Thursday, look for Keenan Robinson to see an increased role at weakside linebacker.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Listed as active Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (calf) is officially listed as active for Monday's matchup against the Bengals.

This is relatively unsurprising, as it was reported earlier Monday that Casillas was expected to play in the contest. Barring any setbacks, the veteran figures to see his usual workload at weakside linebacker.

Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Expected to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas (calf) is expected to play Monday night against the Bengals, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports.

Casillas surprisingly appeared on Saturday's injury report with a calf injury, but the ailment is considered to be minor and thus not anticipated to keep him sidelined Monday. That comes as good news for the Giants defense, as Casillas' 60 total tackles currently ranks second on the team.

November 12, 2016 02:32 PM
Giants' Jonathan Casillas: Questionable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casillas is questionable for Monday's game against the Bengals due to a calf injury.

Casillas didn't appear on the Giants' injury report until Friday, when he was limited at practice, meaning he likely suffered the injury during the week. His status will be confirmed before game time Monday. Look for Keenan Robinson to see a spot start if Casillas is held out.
